Out and back through Dunn Forest along the creek and through the woods From the 200 gate, follow the road about 1/4 mile to the point that the road goes left and the trail (which is marked) goes straight. Follow this single track as it crosses a stream (very easy unless there is record rain or snow run off) and then heads up to the a gentle climb to the trailhead at the 100 road. This is your turn around point with a nice view of the valley. Follow the road back down to your car. This is a good hike for kids, because you turn around at any point.
